Question about 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan
LH mirror housing broken. How do I take it off? Does it snap in place or are there hidden fasteners?
The mirror has bolts made to the encapsulation of the mirror housing. Directly behind the mirror, remove the inner door panel. The mirror is fastened to the door with 10 mm nuts, unplug the electrical supply and replace with new mirror (or salvage is usually just as good - even better than some aftermarket parts).

there should be a plastic cover on the inside of the car where the mirror is take this off and there will be a connector block unplug this and there should be screws undo them and the whole thing should come off themn and you should be able to seperate them then.

yes you can easily , first look at the hole the mirror fits in and you'll see i long thin steel springywire at the topmost section.If you study this wire you will see it just locks the mirrors backplate to the housing.so unspring this steel wire-snap in the mirror- push inwards at the bottom of the mirror so you can get to this wire at the top and with a screwdriver just nudge it back in place to lock it all in,,hope this helped,

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door

You should be able to replace the glass, but I believe it is glued in place. You should be able to tell as you remove the old pieces. It is a special white glue.
I was able to get a great price for the whole mirror on ebay. even the ones with signals and heated.
Hope this helps

Go to your local auto parts store, they should be able to order just the mirror glass. Its held on with double sided tape and a little glue, you will have to scrape the old glass off with a flat screwdriver or similar.
